When you’re in a relationship, there is a moment where you think that they might be “the one.” So, you look to go deeper into emotionally furthering your connection. But how? The solution: giving up negative behaviors and habits. Here are a couple of things to consider if you want the relationship to last:
Reckless Bachelor/Bachelorette Habits
Being committed doesn’t mean that you have to stop partying, drinking, or shopping, but remember to consider that you’re in a relationship now, so there are certain limits to how far you should go. For example, it wouldn’t be fair to your significant other if they take care of you while you’re intoxicated every weekend.
Stop Checking Their Social Media
You may have problems trusting people, which you can build by moving past your suspicions and jealousy. Like when he says, “I got stuck at work, don’t wait up for me.” Instead of thinking the worst and getting anxious, accept what he says (you have no reason to doubt him). Focus on building the relationship further.
Insecurities and Fear
We may often resort to fearing the worst. We’re scared of being left, being cheated on, being lied to, and from here, the list just continues. We also may fear that we’re not smart enough, pretty enough, or just (good) enough for our significant other. Always feeling afraid is exhausting. Once we stop dreading the worst, it will feel liberating.
It’s very unhealthy to hold your relationship to unrealistic expectations, because well, they’re unrealistic. Although setting goals is important, setting impossible standards for your relationship will make it harder for you to be happy. No relationship is perfect, but every relationship is unique and extraordinary.
Petty Drama – Who’s right and who’s wrong?
Couples may argue a lot, but fighting is a part of building a healthy relationship. However, if you are unable to accept your wrongs, it’s going to be harder to strengthen your bond together.
